### AWS CLI
Although the [AWS CLI](https://github.com/aws/aws-cli) is a great resource to manage your AWS-powered services, it’s tough to remember usage of:
- 70+ top-level commands
- 2000+ subcommands
- Countless command-specific options
- Resources such as instance tags and buckets
### SAWS: A Supercharged AWS CLI
SAWS aims to supercharge the AWS CLI with features focusing on:
- Improving ease-of-use
- Increasing productivity
Under the hood, SAWS is powered by the AWS CLI and supports the same commands and command structure.

## Syntax and Output Highlighting
You can control which theme to load for syntax highlighting by updating your [~/.sawsrc](https://github.com/donnemartin/saws/blob/master/saws/sawsrc) file:
` # Visual theme. Possible values: manni, igor, xcode, vim, autumn, vs, rrt, # native, perldoc, borland, tango, emacs, friendly, monokai, paraiso-dark, # colorful, murphy, bw, pastie, paraiso-light, trac, default, fruity theme = vim `
## Auto-Completion of Commands, Subcommands, and Options
SAWS provides smart autocompletion as you type. Entering the following command will interactively list and auto-complete all subcommands specific only to ec2:
## Auto-Completion of AWS Resources
In addition to the default commands, subcommands, and options the AWS CLI provides, SAWS supports auto-completion of your AWS resources. Currently, bucket names, instance ids, and instance tags are included, with additional support for more resources [under development](#todo-add-more-resources).
### S3 Buckets
Option for s3api:
aws s3api get-bucket-acl –bucket
Syntax for s3:
aws s3 ls s3://
Note: The example below demonstrates the use of [fuzzy resource completion](fuzzy-resource-and-shortcutcompletion):
### EC2 Instance Ids
Option for ec2:
aws ec2 describe-instances –instance-ids aws ec2 ls –instance-ids
Note: The ls command demonstrates the use of [customizable shortcuts](#customizable-shortcuts):
### EC2 Instance Tags
Option for ec2:
aws ec2 ls –ec2-tag-key aws ec2 ls –ec2-tag-value
Tags support wildcards with the * character.
Note: ls, –ec2-tag-value, and –ec2-tag-key demonstrate the use of [customizable shortcuts](#customizable-shortcuts):
### TODO: Add More Resources
Feel free to [submit an issue or a pull request](#contributions) if you’d like support for additional resources.
## Customizable Shortcuts
The [~/.saws.shortcuts](https://github.com/donnemartin/saws/blob/master/saws/saws.shortcuts) file contains shortcuts that you can modify. It comes pre-populated with several [handy shortcuts](https://github.com/donnemartin/saws/blob/master/saws/saws.shortcuts) out of the box. You can combine shortcuts with [fuzzy completion](#fuzzy-resource-and-shortcut-completion) for even less keystrokes. Below are a few examples.
List all EC2 instances:
aws ec2 ls
List all running EC2 instances:
aws ec2 ls –ec2-state running # fuzzy shortcut: aws ecstate
List all EC2 instances with a matching tag (supports wildcards *):
aws ec2 ls –ec2-tag-key # fuzzy shortcut: aws ectagk aws ec2 ls –ec2-tag-value # fuzzy shortcut: aws ectagv
List EC2 instance with matching id:
aws ec2 ls –instance-ids # fuzzy shortcut: aws eclsi
List all DynamoDB tables:
aws dynamodb ls # fuzzy shortcut: aws dls
List all EMR clusters:
aws emr ls # fuzzy shortcut: aws emls
Add/remove/modify shortcuts in your [~/.saws.shortcuts](https://github.com/donnemartin/saws/blob/master/saws/shortcuts) file to suit your needs.
Feel free to submit:
- An issue to request additional shortcuts
- A pull request if you’d like to share your shortcuts (see [contributing guidelines](#contributions))
### Fuzzy Resource and Shortcut Completion
To toggle fuzzy completion of AWS resources and shortcuts, use F3 key.
Sample fuzzy shortcuts to start and stop EC2 instances:
aws ecstop aws ecstart
Note: Fuzzy completion currently only works with AWS [resources](#auto-completion-of-aws-resources) and [shortcuts](customizable-shortcuts).
## Fish-Style Auto-Suggestions
SAWS supports Fish-style auto-suggestions. Use the right arrow key to complete a suggestion.
## Executing Shell Commands
SAWS allows you to execute shell commands from the saws> prompt.
## Command History
SAWS keeps track of commands you enter and stores them in ~/.saws-history. Use the up and down arrow keys to cycle through the command history.
## Contextual Help
SAWS supports contextual command line help and contextual web docs.
### Contextual Command Line Help
The help command is powered by the AWS CLI and outputs help within the command line.
aws <command> <subcommand> help
### Contextual Web Docs
Sometimes you’re not quite sure what specific command/subcommand/option combination you need to use. In such cases, browsing through several combinations with the help command line is cumbersome versus browsing the online AWS CLI docs through a web browser.
SAWS supports contextual web docs with the docs command or the F9 key. SAWS will display the web docs specific to the currently entered command and subcommand.
aws <command> <subcommand> docs
## Toolbar Options
SAWS supports a number of toolbar options:
- F2 toggles [output syntax highlighting](#syntax-and-output-highlighting)
- F3 toggles [fuzzy completion of AWS resources and shortcuts](#fuzzy-resource-and-shortcut-completion)
- F4 toggles [completion of shortcuts](#customizable-shortcuts)
- F5 refreshes [resources for auto-completion](#auto-completion-of-aws-resources)
- F9 displays the [contextual web docs](#contextual-web-docs)
- F10 or control d exits SAWS
## Windows Support
SAWS has been tested on Windows 7 and Windows 10.
On Windows, the [.sawsrc](https://github.com/donnemartin/saws/blob/master/saws/sawsrc) file can be found in %userprofile%. For example:
Although you can use the standard Windows command prompt, you’ll probably have a better experience with either [cmder](https://github.com/cmderdev/cmder) or [conemu](https://github.com/Maximus5/ConEmu).
### Pip Installation
$ pip install saws
You can also install the latest SAWS from GitHub source which can contain changes not yet pushed to PyPI:
$ pip install git+https://github.com/donnemartin/saws.git
If you are not installing in a [virtualenv](#virtual-environment-and-docker-installation), run with sudo:
$ sudo pip install saws
Once installed, start SAWS:
### Virtual Environment and Docker Installation
It is recommended that you install Python packages in a [virtualenv](http://docs.python-guide.org/en/latest/dev/virtualenvs/) to avoid potential [issues with dependencies or permissions](https://github.com/donnemartin/saws/issues/15).
To view SAWS virtualenv and [Docker](https://www.docker.com/) installation instructions, click [here](https://github.com/donnemartin/saws/blob/master/INSTALLATION.md).
### Mac OS X 10.11 El Capitan Users
There is a known issue with Apple and its included python package dependencies (more info at https://github.com/pypa/pip/issues/3165). We are investigating ways to fix this issue but in the meantime, to install saws, you can run:
$ sudo pip install saws –upgrade –ignore-installed six
### AWS Credentials and Named Profiles
[Configure your credentials](https://github.com/aws/aws-cli#getting-started) with the AWS CLI:
$ aws configure
If you’d like to use a specific named profile with SAWS, run the following commands on OS X, Linux, or Unix:
$ export AWS_DEFAULT_PROFILE=user1 $ saws
Or as a one-liner:
$ AWS_DEFAULT_PROFILE=user1 saws
Windows users can run the following commands:
> set AWS_DEFAULT_PROFILE=user1 > saws
Command line options for starting SAWS with a specific profile are [under development](https://github.com/donnemartin/saws/issues/16). For more details on how to install and configure the AWS CLI, refer to the following [documentation](http://docs.aws.amazon.com/cli/latest/userguide/installing.html).
### Supported Python Versions
- Python 2.6
- Python 2.7
- Python 3.3
- Python 3.4
Light testing indicates that SAWS also seems to be compatible with Python 3.5.
### Supported Platforms
- Mac OS X
- Tested on OS X 10.10
- Linux, Unix
- Tested on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS
- Tested on Windows 7 and 10
